New Blogs / Recommended Reading

I know, I know--who needs another blog to keep up with, right? My feed reader is spite of the fact that ever since Jude was born, I've been doing much less blog-reading and have abandoned attempts to keep up with a lot of blogs, even ones that are really interesting to me. It's just not possible to read everything I'd like to read, much to my dismay.

But I've run across a couple of sites recently that are worth sharing. One is brand-new, the other merely new-to-me. Both have some content that has been especially timely for me to read this week.

A college acquaintance of mine, Lisa Velthouse, has a book coming out this spring. She's re-launched a blog for promotional purposes, and her first few posts have been wonderful. I'm hoping to get an advance review copy of the book, Craving Grace. In the meantime, I'd encourage you to check out her blog--especially these posts:
Taste for Faith
Frustrated in Fasting
Ash Wednesday

And then a Facebook friend of mine linked to a post from The Happiest Mom (written by Meagan Francis), and that post was interesting enough to prompt me to poke around in the archives a bit. I'm glad I did, since I particularly needed to read these two posts:
Of Soggy French Toast and Starving Anger
Does Venting Make Moms Feel Better?

I think I'll be adding Francis's upcoming book, The Happiest Mom: 10 Secrets to Enjoying Motherhood, to my wishlist, too.

Happy weekend reading!
